New Squat

During the last week happend a lot.
On the 13th of November the police started to evict the camp area near the hole.
It took till saturday17th early morning to get out the last persons.
There was some attention lokaly and in the whole press and TV in this language zone.
On a press conference we gave on the 19th of November we anounced the we have since quiete a while another area.
South of the forest.So we wasnt rally completly evicted and resquattet inside a week:)
On Wednsday 21th of November police came to evict this new area, but didnt had any paper work,
it happend that the owner of the area came to see his land , during this police action.
He was taken in custedy by police, what wasnt such a good press for them :)
It seems he got angry on the police and RWE by this and doesnt want to evict us from his ground.

This days its windy and security cars are going in the neigbourhood,
there are even more people supporting,
its quiete much more known,
be welcome.

Squat more. Resist here and everywhere.

Any time they hit us we come back much stronger :) (more…)

Anti-eviction guide

Before the eviction

  • The clearing of the Hambacher Forest hast already started. The forest is eviction threat. If you have time, it makes sense to come to the forest and support the activists locally in the protection of the forest
  • Think about whether you and your group can spend a couple of days in the forest to support the Hambach180 campaign. If you know when you come write an email to hambacherforst@riseup.net You find the the flyer of the campaign here
  • Use the Ushahidi-Apps (Android/iPhone) for our Stop-RWE-Crowdmap, to keep you up to date and report of solidarity actions or the eviction of the spot!
  • Send your mobile phone number to hambacherforst@riseup.net to get on the sms eviction list. In case of exiction you will be informed directly.
  • Prepare beforehand when and where you want to do solidary actions. Seek out places of RWE in you region, as on this map, which is still upgraded piece by piece. Make a research by yourself!
  • Draw a banner beforehand. Here are some items you can use on the banner: Hambacher Forst bleibt
    There is a design for flyers you can spread on a spontaneous demonstration: Demo-Infoflyer_Rückseite

  • Maybe you make it to organize an information session in the short term. There is an ODP presentation Hambacher Forst bleibt.odp or as PDF: Hambacher Forst bleibt.pdf Here are some videos
  • At the end of the week there is most likely printed stickers and posters. There is a b/w master copy: Hambacher Forst bleibt
  • Distribute stickers and posters in your city!

  • If you can‘t come into the forest or the distance is too large decentralizes solidarity actions are important. Now it’s time for your prepared actions. Take pictures and write articles on http://de.indymedia.org, http://linksunten.indymedia.org and https://stopprwe.crowdmap.com , and send them to ausgeco2hlt-press coordination: presse@ausgeco2hlt.de

  • After a solidarity action try as fast as possible to come in the forest or get informed what makes sense
  • In general

    • In case you still get your power from RWE or its subsidiaries: power switch see i.e. http://www.atomausstieg-selber-machen.de/
